Warlock Otherworldly Patron: Mistress of the Night[edit]

Your patron is the Mistress of the Night, the divine entity of darkness. The Mistress has created a force of magic that resembles the raw natural magic, known as the Shadow Weave. As a part of your pact with ther, the Mistress has bestowed upon the power to embrace and manipulate the dark counterpart of the natural magic. You are aware that as much as you use the Shadow Weave within you, the Shadow Weave uses you - and takes that as granted, for it is all part of the pact.

Mistress of the Night Expanded Spells

Mistress of the Night lets you choose from an expanded list of spells when you learn a warlock spell. The following spells are added to the warlock spell list for you.

Spell Level Spells
1st command, inflict wounds
2nd blindness/deafness, silence
3rd animate dead, nondetection
4th confusion, phantasmal killer
5th cloudkill, dominate person
Adept of the Shadow

Starting at 1st level, you can channel your own life to fuel the Shadow Weave within you. As a bonus action, you can regain one expended warlock spell slot. If you do so, immediately after you regain the spell slot this way, you take necrotic damage equal to 3times the level of spell slot you regained. This damage ignores resistance and immunity.

Once you use this feature, you must finish a long rest before you can use it again.

Weaver of the Shadow

Starting at 6th level, you can twist the Shadow Weave within you to suit your needs. You learn one Metamagic option from the list available to the sorcerer class. You can use this Metamagic option to a warlock spell you cast.

If you already have sorcery points, you gain three more. Otherwise, you have 3 sorcery points. These are used to fuel your Metamagic. You regain your expended sorcery points when you finish a long rest.

Tainted by the Shadow

Starting at 10th level, your body is attuned to the Shadow Weave to the point that it now sustains your life. You gain resistance to necrotic damage, and your hit point maximum cannot be reduced. Additionally, you no longer need food or water to survive.

Master of the Shadow

Starting at 14th level, you have full control over the Shadow Weave within you, manipulating its flow for your purpose. You learn one additional Metamagic option, and gain four additional sorcery points to fuel your Metamagic. You can use only one Metamagic option on a spell when you cast it, unless otherwise noted.

Additionally, you can now channel the life from another creature to fuel the Shadow Weave within you. Whenever you reduce a hostile creature other than a construct or an undead to 0 hit points, you regain 3 sorcery points.

Variant: Point-Based Pact Magic Feature[edit]

When using the point-based Pact Magic variant rule, the following features replace Mistress of the Night subclass features you gain at 1st, 6th, and 14th level.

Special thanks to 220.233.94.145 for the request (of the non-variant rule version).

Adept of the Shadow

Starting at 1st level, you can channel your own life to fuel the Shadow Weave within you. As a bonus action, you can regain a number of spell points, up to half your warlock level plus your Charisma modifier, rounded up (a minimum of 1). If you do so, immediately after you regain spell points this way, you take necrotic damage equal to three times the number of spell points you regained. This damage ignores resistance and immunity.

Once you use this feature, you must finish a short rest or long rest before you can use it again.

Weaver of the Shadow

Starting at 6th level, you can twist the Shadow Weave within you to suit your needs. You learn one Metamagic option from the list available to the sorcerer class. You can use this Metamagic option to a warlock spell you cast, and you spend your spell points instead of sorcery point to fuel your Metamagic.

Master of the Shadow

Starting at 14th level, you have full control over the Shadow Weave within you, manipulating its flow for your purpose. You learn one additional Metamagic option. You can use only one Metamagic option on a spell when you cast it, unless otherwise noted.

Additionally, you can now channel the life from another creature to fuel the Shadow Weave within you. Whenever you reduce a hostile creature other than a construct or an undead to 0 hit points, you regain 3 spell points.
